How many of us have waited for this day to arrive? Ok, apart from the last minute panic of getting pieces done....how many of us have waited for today! :)
362 people participating!
Thank you Lori, for this amazing party.
Ok, ok. Without further ado.......
Here are the ingredients that Joanna Matuszczyk sent me.
I immediately fell in love with the focal. So light, summery and fun.
The clasp is beautiful also. She sent me flowers! I love flowers.
Purple is my favorite color!
Thank you Joanna.
Here is the completed piece.
Now in this post here I talked about how the ideas were flowing, absolutely flowing and how I had almost disastrous results.
I tried to wire wrap a few things, two different ways. Purple wire! It didn't work out so well. I will share that at the end.
See how beautiful the clasp lays - so pretty.
I knew that there would be silver chain in this - coordinates with the clasp.
Now, Joanna did send ribbon and I tried and tried, but just couldn't seem to
make it work. It all looked ugly. Ugly I tell you. The ribbon would have been a
step out of my box, but I couldn't seem to leave the box.......
I strung/wire wrapped flowers and a few drops/beads on chain and the wire wrapped these wonderful green squares.
Love these green squares.
Such a great piece.
I did my usual sit, touch, play, move, walk away, shop for a few more ideas, sit,
touch routine and have to say that this came really easily for me.
It must be the great beads that Joanna sent me.
I managed to save two of the green beads to make earrings with.
I love the color combo, the clear flowers and those green squares!
Now, for my almost disaster. I was wire wrapping beads around the frame of my focal,
and it snapped in half! HALF.
I promptly hollered for my daughter to come down.
She came running, must have been the tone of my scream.
With tears in my eyes, I handed her the pieces and told her to "fix it".
She glued, painted and sprayed and you can barely tell that it broke.
Thank you Caroline!
